Please use the Contact Us form to request support, volunteer or make suggestions.
There is further helpful information in relevant sections throughout the website, in particular:
The PC has long had a Community Emergency Plan which has been recently updated to cope with these difficult times. It is also held by the County Council and Emergency Services. Our mutual planning and activity will help our community to stay safe and look after each other in these challenging times.
It is intended that volunteers will assist vulnerable residents to take care and stay safe. If you are able to volunteer, or if you need support, please use the Contact Us form on the website.
North Yorkshire Police have become aware of individuals exploiting the good community networks being created following the current coronavirus situation.
They have had reports of suspicious persons cold calling the elderly and vulnerable and offering to get shopping for them asking them to hand over cash.
Should anyone get such a call
please do not engage and politely close the door.
Laura Wright is our co-ordinator for local volunteers who are able to assist those needing support.
She will be implementing safe guarding measures.
Information will be distributed via the monthly newsletter (but this will not be delivered by volunteers but left for collection at The Willows) and more regularly by InfoNet KFF - it is important to sign up if you have not already done so - use the 'Subscribe to InfoNet KFF' box to the left of your screen.
